Our forum members are overcome with excitement. “This is so good I can’t even breathe!” raves Nepenthes.

After the series of multi-girl covers we have been seeing this season, A.D.C proclaims, “This is what a model cover is supposed to look like and not like that prom picture Vogue US had for September!”

“Absolutely Beyond, I am rubbing my eyes. Tears of Joy, this cover is beyond everything!” enthuses an elated TeeVanity.

The rave reviews just keep on flooding in with MyNameIs writing, “OMG, this is beyond amazing. I’m loving the 90s/early 00s feel. The cast is great. And I’m so here for this model-group cover trend. Get it.”

We assume mikel is also a fan after simply commenting, “Holy crap!”

“Gorgeous, and vibrant, but it almost looks a bit dated? Something very early 90s about it,” states Miss Dalloway.

“Yeah it’s totally Versace by Avedon,” agrees Marc10.

Also to notice a slight 90s quality to the cover image is BerlinRocks: “I like the photo of the cover. It is real fashion and indeed very Avedon, and any 1990s supermodel group shot atmosphere (everybody did a supermodels group shot in the 90s from Bensimon to Avedon, Meisel, Lindbergh etc.).”

LastNight shares, “Oooh I was not expecting this! I like it a lot, however the image with Daria, Kate, etc. would have been much more powerful with just the four girls and not the guy as well but I still like it.”

Let’s hope we’re treated to more of the M&M favorites inside the issue! Check out the other two covers and join the discussion here.
